LMDE USB Stick EeePC

Postby plowran on Tue Dec 21, 2010 9:40 pm

Hi Everyone;
First Off I have had nothing but issues with Mint and even Ubuntu itself since the release of 7... I keep getting the ERRNO5 error....
But since LMDE came out I am back in actiton.
Heres the situation, my kid sister called me with an issue of my brother using her laptop and now it does nothing. after the BIOS boots the screen goes blank with a Cursor just blinking...
I cannot even load the backup restore image. I have had nothing but issues trying to get WinXP Win7 and even Linux of any DISTRO to load
for some reason I cannot even get a live edition to load off of the USB stick of which I have tried 3 different sicks....
Has anyone had this issue or could someone point me into the direction of a possible means to fix this?
I know this is a stupid N00B question but unfortunately this is my first NetBook I have had to work on..
Thanks
Phil

moved here when I was 12 then at 19 joined the Navy and then Returned when I was 25 and been here ever since.....getting ready for the big 42 here :D As for getting Windows to work on a USB thats not possible because Windows clings to hardware. so as for installing on a USB thats not a possibility sorry :(

No No No
I need a XP or Win7 Image on a USB Stick, M$ has a Utility that will not work for me and there are even instructions
all over the web on how to do it Manually but I cannot get it to work...

Long time ago I use wintoflash to prepare USB bootable XP stick from a win XP CD.
